In my three years of happy blogging here at SMP, I’ve loved many Chicago engagement sessions.  Many, many Chicago engagement sessions.  But this Navy Pier shoot captured perfectly by Nicodem Creative?  I don’t think I’ve ever been this smitten.  Maybe that has a little something to do with this beyond darling duo, who met while backpacking through Europe and spend their days traveling the globe whilst basking in their you-can’t-miss-it happiness.  I adore them.  And their gallery of breathtaking images? Outstanding.  Join me there for so much more.

From Nicodem CreativeIn their own words, Anthony and Evelyn have a love defined by adventure. And when a couple begins to fall in love while backpacking through Europe, has their first date in front of the Eiffel Tower, gets engaged in San Francisco, and decides to have their wedding on a boat off the coast of Chicago, it isn’t hard to imagine why. Our session with the couple captured that wild, spontaneous spirit: from dancing on the deck of a boat moored alongside the whirling colors of life on Navy Pier, to the exotic gardens on the pier itself, to wading in the chilly lake water spread beneath the cityscape, we tried to keep up with Anthony and Evelyn, luggage in tow. There is a vibrancy in their pictures, an aliveness that is theirs, and we thoroughly enjoyed spending the day catching glimpses of it. Anthony and Evelyn will be married on June 9th, on the Spirit Boat Cruise in Chicago, and the real adventure will begin!
